Though loners, the Kirkpatrick
following in Independence made a
valiant fight- His forces were led
by W. Percivnl. and after the
ballot was counted showed him
self made of the proper stuff by as
suring the convention of his loyal
support for the nomln of next
Saturday's convention. "V can't
nay but Percival put up a hard but
fair fight," remarked one of the
delegates after election and ha ad
ded, "His course has really
strengthened him here."
The Nazaar given by the ladies
of the Christian church on the
evening of March 31st waa a very
successful affair. A special motor
was run from Monmouth bringing
a large nnmber. The program,
consisting of recitations, vocal and
instrumental music, was very good.
Many articles of value was put up
for sale and quite a snug sum was
realized from the sale.
